Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2014 Estate Cuvée comes on with a nose of cherry pie and candied violet, and a translucent magenta color that belies its depth. Laser-focused tart red cherry flavors mingle seamlessly with eucalyptus, cassis and subtle white peppercorn.
Vineyard Notes
2014 was the final vintage of the Bending Branch Estate Vineyards in Comfort, Texas. The 2018 Picpoul Blanc will be the first Bending Branch Estate bottling from Lost Pirogue Vineyard in Center Point, Texas.
Production Notes
Tempranillo, Petite Sirah, Malbec, Aglianico, and Mourvèdre
Food Pairing Notes
Simple foods serve to showcase complex wines. Rare beef tenderloin is a model of simplicity, luxurious in and of itself without complicated preparations. Fresh, pungent mushrooms braised with butter, wine and cream have the same effect. Like the 2014 Estate Cuvée, the whole is greater than the sum of the parts.
